SVA Student Health Services recently sponsored a group project to help raise awareness of sexual violence. SVA students and staff members decorated T-shirts for The Clothesline Project,
a national organization started in 1990 by a small group of women from Massachusetts. According to Carol A. Chichetto, chair of the national project’s steering committee, “The concept was simple – let each woman tell her own story, in her own unique way, and hang it out for all to see. It was and is a way of airing society’s dirty laundry.” The organization estimates it has now created nearly 50,000 shirts. The shirts created by members of the SVA community are on display through May 2 in the mezzanine of The George Washington Residence, 23 Lexington Avenue. For more information about The Clothesline Project or if you’d like to contribute, please contact Student Health Services at 212.592.2246.
